Volunteers are an integral part of LCiL. For a number of years now we have been able to train and support a team of ‘LCiL Champions’ who are volunteers able to share with others their experience of disability, or being a carer. In addition we are keen to maintain a pool of volunteers who we can call on for help either on a regular basis (e.g. helping with the newsletter, reviewing media news etc.) or in a more ad hoc fashion (e.g. research projects, updating Grapevine publications, etc.).
